How do you solve #x/4=3/2#?

1 Answer

Answer:

#x=6#

Explanation:

We can do this a couple of ways.

One way is to cross multiply:

#x/4=3/2#

#2x=3xx4#

#x=12/2#

#x=6#

Another way is to notice that the denominator on the left is twice as big as the right, so we can adjust the right side this way:

#x/4=3/2#

#x/4=3/2(1)#

#x/4=3/2(2/2)#

#x/4=(3xx2)/(2xx2)#

#x/4=6/4#

So we can see that #x=6#
